The Kurdish people have been in a pickle for decades. As Turkey begins an assault against the stateless nation, the situation only appears to be worsening; many people across the globe have placed blame on President Trump for moving small numbers of troops away from the Kurdish region of Syria. But it’s far from the first time the United States has turned blind eye to their so-called ally in the Middle East, so why does Kurdistan continue to place faith in the Pentagon?
Several days ago, President Trump withdrew U.S. troops from Kurdistan in Northern Syria. He consequently endorsed Turkish military operations against the Kurdish forces. Since then, Turkey has announced they’d begin ground operations in Northern Syria. Turkish bombings and troop deployments in the region have already begun.
